Song Lyric Sunday — Lyin’ Eyes

This, That, and The Other

Let’s face it, Jim Adams had facial features on his mind when he chose “Chin, Ears, Eyes, Face, Mouth, and Nose” as the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme. I am keen on people’s eyes, and there are tons of songs about eyes. But I’m also keen on The Eagles, which is why I chose “Lyin’ Eyes.”

“Lyin’ Eyes” was written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, although Henley said that Frey was the main writer of the song. It was recorded in 1975 by The Eagles, with Frey singing lead vocals. Their second single from their album One of These Nights, “Lyin’ Eyes” reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 8 on the Billboard Country chart.

This song is about a woman who cheats on her husband. She is confused and lonely, and tells her rich, old husband, whose hands are as cold as…

🎵 COLDPLAY – Champion of the world

Blog Site of Gabriele R.

After listening to the whole album on spotify I can say that this is the best song on the album. The style of the various songs differs greatly from that of the previous albums. Some may be disappointed by the more classic and less rock style.

In fact I like this album less, where the voices and the choirs take over the music and the voice of Chris Martin. Probably the band had the need to break a bit with the classic pop-rock that made all the songs of real hits.

The first part of the text is in Igbo language, a language of an African ethnic group that lives in Nigeria and the translation is:

What are you talking about, dear God?
For everything
God made it

LYRICS
Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N’ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

I tried my best to be just like
The other…

A Delicious Trip to Louisville, Kentucky

What's for Dinner Moms?

I fully intended to post this yesterday but I was so tired after the weekend. I couldn’t even get it done.

The Mid_America Oireachtas was this past weekend. We left on Thanksgiving morning to travel to Louisville, Kentucky. The Irish Dance Regionals are held each year over the weekend immediately following Thanksgiving. Imagine thousands of Irish dancers and their families meeting for one weekend. It is fun and super tiring!

My daughter danced on a celli team and did a traditional set (all the dance steps for the traditional dances are 95% the same all over the world). Her celli team finished 5th and they were super happy to recall.  There were only 5 teams but they felt good about what they did and it was the first time their team recalled.

Her traditional set was good too. When she finished dancing she came off stage and said, “That felt…

Day 1. A short break in Istanbul, Turkey

Love Travelling

In readiness for our morning flight from London Gatwick Airport we had stayed overnight at a Travelodge in Crawley. This proved convenient as buses depart from near the hotel (Bus 10) to the south terminal taking only 20 minutes with tickets from the driver costing just £2.50.

Untitled No queues at the Turkish Airlines check-in desks

We arrived at the airport at 7.25 a.m. and were pleasantly surprised to find no queues whatsoever at the Turkish Airlines check-in desk. As our flight wasn’t scheduled to depart for a further three hours we were able to make use of our ‘My Gatwick‘ membership and popped into the Regus Express Business Lounge for a complimentary cup of coffee. If you plan to call in there, just download a voucher in advance and include your flight details. Complimentary access is available for up to one hour but as the lounge is before…

Winter morning with birds

Jane Dougherty Writes

Time for some strict syllabic poetry this morning. A cinquain sequence for Colleen’s challenge. Our first real frost and the last for a while I hope, is disappearing in a beautiful cloudless morning.

White the

winter meadow

furred stiff with frosted cold

that fell with the starlight in night’s

dark time.

Bright the

sun in cloudless

sky, sharp as ice shards, blue

as the powdered wings of blue tits

feasting.

Night cold,

fading faster

than melting ice, frost-fur

bathed in golden light where birds flit,

squabbling.
